An interesting story for those of us children of the Enlightenment- NASA keeps getting pressured by the administration to stop being so damned scientific.
Last week, NASA's top climate scientist complained that the space agency's public-affairs office was trying to silence his statements on global warming...
In October... George Deutsch, a presidential appointee in NASA headquarters, told a Web designer working for the agency to add the word "theory" after every mention of the Big Bang.
Repeatedly that year, public-affairs directors at all of NASA's science centers were admonished by White House appointees at headquarters to focus all attention on Mr. Bush's January 2004 "vision" for returning to the Moon and eventually traveling to Mars.
Lastly, from now on, whenever a shuttle takes off, the announcer is to scream "YES! Jesus is very happy with US!"
